The property

WINNER of the Sykes Gems award Gold Best in Scotland 2017 & 2018.

Duns 6 miles.

Set in an idyllic rural location offering total relaxation, this studio-style apartment is in the Lammermuir Hills, right on the final section of the Southern Upland Way, 6 miles north of Duns in the Scottish Borders.

Driving along the country lanes between streams and woodland you will soon feel the stress seeping away from your shoulders and as you pass through the estate's Victorian lodge gates, you can’t fail to be impressed by their grandeur.

Kidcleugh Hide is the perfect destination for a romantic break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The first floor is all open plan, a bright and airy studio room filled with bespoke handcrafted wooden furniture, fur throws, cushions and mood lighting.

There is a bedroom, sitting and dining area with exposed timber beams, large windows and a woodburner to add to the luxury that exudes throughout.

French doors lead from the living area to the decking, a perfect spot to relax at any time of day looking over the fields and woods below spotting deer, pheasants, and hares.

On the ground floor there is a shower room and a compact kitchenette.

The dark skies around Kidcleugh Hide come alive at night so wrap up in a blanket, sit back and marvel at the sky above peppered with thousands of stars while listening to the owls hooting from the nearby owl and lodge woods as well as the estate's own RSPB owl house.

If you can bear to leave this romantic retreat there is plenty of walking and cycling from the doorstep, the Northumberland coastline and Edinburgh are an easy drive away and with Duns just six miles south.

Kidcleugh Hide is a perfect base for touring the Borders and North Northumberland.

About the location


Berwick-upon-Tweed 15 miles.

The small border town of Duns is set in a wide valley known as The Merse and was once the capital of the Scottish Borders, when the current capital, Berwick-upon-Tweed, was under English rule. The town offers a good range of shops, including an award-winning butchers and quality delicatessen, pubs and restaurants, whilst the Jim Clark Museum is open to the public in honour of the famous racing driver who lived in the area. Duns Castle sits within a nature reserve with well-marked woodland lakeside walks through the castle estate. There are many castles and historic houses scattered throughout the surrounding area, including Manderston House (home of Lord Palmer), Floors Castle and Gardens, the largest inhabited house in Scotland, Norham Castle situated on the River Tweed, Mellerstain House and Paxton House and Country Park. A short drive to the east coast offers the opportunity to explore the dog friendly beaches at Coldingham or for the more adventurous why not learn to surf at the local surf school. Widely acclaimed golfing is available at Duns and nearby Dunbar whilst fishing for trout and salmon on the Tweed and Whiteadder River is also available with permits available locally. The nearby walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is well worth a visit with weekly markets, town trails and a cinema. A short hop to Eyemouth to feed the resident harbour seals, enjoy award-winning fish and chips or take a boat trip for some coastal exploration. The sights and excitement of Edinburgh are just 45 miles away and numerous other destinations are within a short driving distance of this fantastic location providing a great base at any time of the year for exploring the beautiful Scottish Border region and the picturesque, exhilarating North Northumberland regions.
